A sports journalist on-board said they weren’t “particularly rowdy,” surprisingly.

You’ve heard of a party bus? Well, how about a party plane? Passengers aboard a recent three-hour-and 20-minute Southwest Airlines flight from Oakland to Kansas City were personally congratulated by the pilot for drinking all of the alcohol on board.

The occasion? The plane was packed with Raiders fans who were gearing up for the big game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The unusually boozy flight was brought to the attention of the media by sports journalist Jimmy Durkin, who live-tweeted his experience.

Durkin then confirmed that the plane was not packed with the Raiders themselves, but rather exuberant fans of the team:

“Not particularly rowdy,” Durkin told The Telegraph. “A decent amount of folks in Raiders gear. Pretty standard fare for a flight to a city where the Raiders are playing.”

The flight back was probably pretty solemn, in contrast, because the Raiders lost that game 21-13.
